KSL is reporting a story about ammo found on a bus, read it here.

There's a funny quote:

The magazine clip belongs to an expensive gun. Harrisville Police Chief Max Jackson said it goes with a "high-priced, top-dollar, six hour .40 caliber handgun."
So what's a "six hour" handgun?!? Sig Sauer? :ROFL:

Oh, and what's a magazine clip? I didn't know magazines had clips... do they mean paper clips? So is it a magazine or a clip, or a clip for a magazine? I don't think they really know. Maybe they should read this.

The media crack me up, the ignorance is astonishing and somehow so horribly pathetic.

On channel 2 a cop showed the magazine (NOT "clip") and it had Sig P220 on the side. The thing that's most interesting about this whole thing is that the Sig P220 is a very common, standard issue LEO duty weapon. Perhaps that's the reason no one is claiming it???

I love it. The media does not seem to understand the difference between a magazine and a clip. In this case they just use both words . . . magazine clip. I always get a kick out of it. However, the six-hour reference is even better. :lolbang:

I understand the difference between a magazine and a clip, but the fact is that clip has been used to refer to a magazine for darn near 100 years, so I think it makes little difference. Everybody knows exactly what you're talking about when you use clip.

I agree that it doesn't matter that much, but I'm not so sure that it's true that "clip" has been used to refer to a magazine for "darn near 100 years".

AFAICT, the source of the confusion is WWII and earlier infantry rifles that did use a clip, NOT a magazine.
